Community Blood Bank Executive Director Ken Versteeg says the Sibley visit is the blood bank’s big push heading into the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Versteeg says the Memorial Day holiday marks the first holiday of summer, and the demand for blood increases.
He says most anyone can donate blood, but there are a few requirements to keep in mind.
Versteeg added that you can only donate blood once every 56 days. He says donation is a simple process that doesn’t take up much of your time.
You can drop in any time Wednesday from 10 am to 1 pm, and 2:30 to 5 pm, or if you’d prefer to call for an appointment you can all the Osceola Community Hospital Lab at 712-754-2574.
The Community Blood Bank is the SOLE provider of blood and blood products to the Osceola Community Hospital, as well as most other hospitals in northwest Iowa.
